A QUARTER OF AN INCH

There's a new entry over at Hestia Homeschool about some screwy definitions of child abuse and whether or not to spank It reminded me of something that happened with my oldest nephew when he was about two or so.

My brother in law was working swing and my sister was going to real estate school so we watched Chris a lot. Chris was and is (19 years later) mischief incarnate. We discouraged him from touching the tv screen. I looked up and he was in front of the tv with his hand up. I started to say something when I realized that he was NOT touching the screen. The finger was about a quarter of an inch FROM the screen, but was not touching the the screen. He looked over his shoulder with the cheekiest grin I'd seen up 'til then. I just about turned purple trying to keep from laughing and he just kept grinning. It is one of my most treasured memories. :-)
